we were there 2 nights, we had booked this place because it was a 5 stars and because we thought the place would be original. (water tower). it was expensive but i tought worth it. actually according to the experience we had, the price of a hostel or camping would habe been more appropriate. we arrived late and we had...

The managing staff was completely unprofessional & rude upon check in. We had a room booked for one suite & one regular room. They had assigned us the wrong room. Instead of correcting or even admitting the mistake, we were told that was the room that was booked & dismissed. When another co-worker had approached the reception with the same... More

stayed 2 nights. Location is ok, short walk to main attractions. Staff were not very pleasant except for the barman who we had a great chat with (as he had completed his apprenticeship in Ireland!) The rooms are quirky but get far too warm = no sleep I'm afraid.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in December 2014. The hotel staff were excellent from arrival to departure and nothing was too much effort. The room was in great condition (a few marks/small stains if you want to be picky!) and was cleaned to a good level on a daily basis. We ordered room service during our stay,... More

After receiving my night in the Hotel on New Years Eve as a present, I checked trip advisor and I was a bit worried about the reviews on cleanliness, tired furniture etc and poor welcome at reception. I can say that I had no need to worry everything was fantastic, I was a very satisfied guest. Enjoy the design of... More

A great hotel. Interesting architecture. Breakfast is expensive as is the parking. The rooms are great, plenty of space and excellent service. Our pillows were less than ideal though (no additional pillows in the cupboard).

I choose Hotel im Wasserturm as I have stayed at SLH hotels before and really like the quality and service. The building looks stunning and the architecture has been well preserved and made into a great property. Breakfast was good and as an SLH member, was complimentary and the restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. I don't think however... More

What a spectacular looking building from the outside! Matched only by how well the interior space has been created. Floating walkways join the the central column of the old water tower to the rooms. The exposed brickwork and Christmas decorations all made for a very attractive setting from which time explore cologne in December. I stayed in a Deluxe Double... More

stayed here for one night due to rail strike in Belgium, booked through booking.com so worked out very cheap for last minute deal. This hotel looks stunning and the architecture is lovely. The building has odd shape due to this and it is reflected in the room layouts. The greeting as you arrive is less than welcoming, the staff made... More

Special hotel created from a renewed old tower. I have spent few night alone for business. It's a nice experience but the beds are of poor quality and I could not sleep well. The gym is poor as well and I could not train. Facilities shall not be poor in a 5 star hotel.

Dear Massimiliano, many thanks for reviewing the hotel after your recent stay. We regret not having been able to provide the service and comfort you expected of us. We would like to point out that we are renovating our rooms and also the beds. I agree with you, that our gym ist small, but we have personal training inside of... More
